Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in Vibe On You (Stevie Kotey & Manestar Remix) - Sare Havlicek* Feat. Hannah Mancini - Vibe On You (Fil resolution or higher. This record contains all of the crucial aspects that make this type of music so compelling, from the astute vocal performance of Henning Basse to the shredding axe handling of Matthias Lange.
Esteemed keyboardist Don Airey joins the band with accents that push the sound of the band even further, if that is possible.
These stark rumblings give way to a melodic verse that is filled Power Of Time - Metalium - Demons Of Insanity - Chapter Five electricity. Yet, Basse has an original sounding voice which assists in making Metalium sound like no other, causing that all-important chemistry that allows certain artists to rise above the competition.
Across 5 albums released by this German power metal outfit, they have written some truly great songs, and touched upon some fairly interesting ideas IMO Chapter Three and this one are tied for best concept. This album, upon reflection, is a little unnecessary. In the same way as Rhapsody, Metalium have taken one concept to it's natural peak, and now the big question is whether or not they will try and squeeze one more album please god no from this idea. Anyway, back to the album in question.
The album couldn't begin any less promisingly. For fuck's sake. I mean what the fuck??? Power Of Time, following the trend of all previous metalium albums, is the strongest single song on the album.
Yadda yadda. Demons Of Insanity is the "Break the spell" of this album. Catchy and with a great chorus; good stuff. And it goes on.

Metalium's first album was the fastest selling metal album of If they are to build on this success, they're going to have to try something different in future. If you're interested in Metalium, you only really need one, or maybe two albums.
